Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you're already flying through the free fall Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all
Losing him was blue like I'd never known Missing him was dark grey all alone Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met But loving him was red Loving him was red
Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there's no right answer Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong
Losing him was blue like I'd never known Missing him was dark gray all alone Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met But loving him was red Oh red Burning red
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes Tell myself it's time now, gotta let go But moving on from him is impossible When I still see it all in my head Burning red Burning it was red
Oh losing him was blue like I'd never known Missing him was dark gray all alone Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met 'Cause loving him was red Yeah, yeah red We're burning red
And that's why he's spinning 'round in my head Comes back to me, burning red Yeah, yeah His love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street

Rick from West Chester, PaThis is a tremendous song, and maybe the best song video ever. Maybe it's derivative, but all the analogies to colors are just fantastic for an intense but doomed relationship. I would go to see a Taylor Swift concert just on the basis of the Red video.
Camille from Toronto, OhThe opening notes of this song put me in the mind of "Sara" by Fleetwood Mac.
